Many (QRP) homebuilders offer their projects as kits. A popular series nowadays is the BITX. There are often mailing lists connected to those projects; I am a member of several.
I'm wondering how these communities come into being. Should I have an awesome project that I'd like to provide as a kit, where would I go? Specifically,
- Would it be considered inappropriate to advertise my own project on, say, the BITX mailing list?
- Or are there more general mailing lists (not tied to a particular device) that I don't know about?
- Do club magazines publish notifications of such projects?
Or perhaps there is some other way? Or would you typically first build it with some friends (from the local club or so) and then hope the word gets spread?
